Why Metal Table Slides
American made high-quality metal table slides are superior to wooden or imported low-gauge metal table slides for three primary reasons:

- Quality is important whether remaking an antique table or manufacturing new tables

The History of Table Slides
Gillows of Lancaster and London, also known as Gillow & Co., is credited with designing the first table slide. Robert Gillow (1704 – 1772) was a fine furniture maker based in Lancaster, PA and London. He founded his company in Lancaster about 1730.
By the mid-1700s, the name represented the leading American cabinet-maker. The reputation for manufacturing very high quality furniture endured for well over 100 years. The Gillow family owned Gillows until 1814. It was taken over by Redmayne, Whiteside, and Ferguson, and they continued to use the Gillow name. Gillows furniture was known for quality. In 1897, Gillows merged with Warings of Liverpool.
